Quality components means the shifts are crisp and the brakes are powerful. In the past, I've had no luck with road bikes (so many punctures), so I decided on a hybrid design. I have no fear with these tires, and my hometown owns some of the worst roads known to man. Once I knew the style and the components, the last decision I needed to make was to pick a good looking bike. I love the all black with the understated logos and the silver cassette.
This is the bike I've been looking for. Great option if you're like me and don't know where your ride will take you. Smooth gear changes and like the confidence I feel in transitioning from pavement to gravel/dirt roads and vice versa. Not a speedster but you'll feel good not having to miss a beat as conditions on your ride change. More relaxed posture than a road bike which helps me enjoy and control my ride more. Wasn't considering this bike initially when shopping around but then again haven't been in the market for one in years. Very happy with the guidance and choice.
It's not quite fast enough to catch Bugs Bunny. But, I was able to run over Elmer Fudd! I can't wait to blow up the Earth with this new contraption!!!
